Holzkirchen Coat of Arms

Shield bendy of five of Gules and Or, issuant from base a church Sable with port and windows Argent, superimposed by an inescutcheon Argent divided by a cross patty Sable.
The church belongs to a local Benedictine monastery and was built by Balthasar Neumann. The inescutheon is alluding to the Teutonic Order. The background is taken from the arms of the Barons of Hutten and is alluding to provost Bonifatius of Hutten, the employer of Balthasar Neumann.
